    Viganò and Bux: A coordinated effort? On September 27, 2018, Archbishop Viganò issued the second in his series of three testimonies (thus far) that featured a “special appeal” to Cardinal Marc Ouellet; calling on the Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops to “bear witness to the truth” by releasing “key documents incriminating McCarrick and many in the curia for their cover-ups.”On October 7, Cardinal Ouellet responded with an open letter of his own; disparaging Viganò while also (perhaps inadvertently) confirming that documents do in fact exist relative to the restrictions that were placed against McCarrick.Six days later, on October 13, well-known Italian...

    A Letter to Archbishop Viganò: TEMPUS ADEST -- The Time has Come ARCHBISHOP VIGANÒ:  TEMPUS ADEST!  THE TIME HAS COME! Dear Archbishop Viganò: I, as a priest of the Roman Catholic Church. write this letter to you during the season of Advent, this time of waiting, of expectation, this time of violet that asks us to ponder the meaning of the coming of Jesus Christ into this world of sin and death, to ponder these things in the darkest part of the year when the darkness seems to overwhelm the light.  This is the liturgical season in which John...

    Cardinal Burke on Viganò testimony: God’s law is higher than the pontifical secret November 9, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – God’s law comes before all else, Cardinal Raymond Burke said recently in regard to bombshell testimonies from Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò on mishandling of clergy sexual abuse in the Church up to and including Pope Francis. Because of this, the former U.S. papal nuncio was obligated to come forward with what he knew, the cardinal said. “The evils he had denounced are of the most serious nature,” said Cardinal Burke, and if true, then “he was obliged in conscience” to release...

    Cardinal Burke on Vigano: To Ignore Him is Negligence Cardinal Burke has been quite vocal recently in defense of Archbishop Viganò.LifeSiteNews reports: “The evils he had denounced are of the most serious nature,” said Cardinal Burke, and if true, then “he was obliged in conscience” to release the information as he did.“The law of God in these matters is higher than, for example, the pontifical secret,” Burke said.And in a recent interview with The Wanderer: “We ought to take very seriously all that he has said,” Cardinal Burke stated, as Vigano has said he has evidence to back his...
  • Pope Francis Decries ‘Insults’ as a Form of Homicide

    Breitbart ^ | Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D.
    For Jesus, insults are a way of “killing” our brothers and sisters, Pope Francis said Wednesday, urging his hearers to commit to never insulting anyone. “We are in the habit of insulting other, it’s true, and insulting others becomes like breathing,” the pope told the crowds gathered in Saint Peter’s Square for his weekly audience. “But Jesus tells us: ‘Stop, because insults hurt, they kill.’” Insulting others “is a way of killing a person’s dignity,” Francis continued. “It would be wonderful if this teaching of Jesus entered our minds and hearts, and each of us would say: ‘I will never...

    How could you, Archbishop Vigano? “How can you celebrate Mass,” Cardinal Ouellet angrily demands of Archbishop Viganò, “and mention the pope’s name in the Eucharistic Prayer?” An excellent question. It forces us to ask whether we have ever imagined that in praying for our shepherds we were thereby paying tribute to their rectitude and decency. Think of the faithful whose priests, over, say, the last 30 years, have invited them to pray for John Paul our pope, or for Benedict our pope … “… and for Rembert our bishop”—who used $450,000 of his flock’s contributions to buy the silence of...

In this latest Sunday Sermon from South St. Paul, Father explains the history of the Holy Rosary and then stresses the necessity of praying the Rosary for the intention of a heavenly intervention in the ongoing crisis in the Church under Francis of Rome. “Let Heaven hear the sound of your rosaries so that the voices here on earth trying to expose the wickedness in the Church might be heard and this help bring an end to this wickedness.” Please Share this video: V is...

    Et Tu, Ouellet? Cardinal Answers Viganò with a Blade, but Provides Confirmation Earlier today, we published a piece by Italian journalist, Vaticanista, and author Marco Tosatti about the Vatican’s response to Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò. Originally published on October 6 (and translated into English for 1P5), that piece was written too soon to take into account the second phase in the Vatican’s communications assault on Viganò.This latter move came yesterday, in the form of an open letter from Cardinal Marc Ouellet of Quebec, Canada.In his most recent public statement issued at the end of September, Viganò made a specific plea...

    The former CDF prefect said Catholics had a right to know the truth about the accusationsCardinal Gerhard Müller, the former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), has urged Pope Francis to “look for reconciliation” with his critic Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò. Speaking to EWTN’s The World Over programme, the German cardinal called on the Pope to “give answers to [his] accusations or questions”, saying: “The people of God have a right to know what happened.” Archbishop Viganò, the former US nuncio, has accused Pope Francis of ignoring sanctions imposed on ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick by Benedict...

What spin. What abuse, what open threats. Typical of the Bergoglian Peronist regime. I can imagine the next response from  Viganò be ground-breaking and provide even more evidence of corruption of these prelates.

    In the Gospel of St. John, from the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel, (the date of Archbishop Carlo Viganò’s second attestation), Jesus observes, “Here is a true child of Israel. There is no duplicity in him.”One can’t help but ascribe this same observation to Archbishop Viganò. His brave and bold witness rings authentic and true. There is no duplicity in him. As the messenger of the hidden and hideous, Viganò urgently proclaims the unvarnished truth to the faithful.What is next for the Church? This question hangs, like the sword of St. Michael, over the pope, bishops, and laity. We...

    BRISBANE, Australia, October 1, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – An Australian archbishop has made derisive comments against Archbishop Viganò, suggesting that the Vatican whistleblower thinks  he’d make a better pope than Francis.  “The latest Vigano broadside (un’altra Viganata!) leaves me wondering if the Archbishop thinks that he rather than @Pontifex should be Pope. #papabile.” stated Archbishop Mark Coleridge of Brisbane on Twitter In his second testimony — released last week — former papal nuncio Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò repeated his central assertion that Pope Francis knew that Archbishop McCarrick was “perverse and evil” when he made him “one of his principal agents in...

And he knoweth that he saith true: that you also may believe.” ~ John 19:35In a new document released on Thursday (Sept. 27) but dated today (Sept. 29, Feast of St. Michael the Archangel), Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has once again given “testimony to the truth” (John 18:37) concerning the crimes of disgraced ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick and how Pope Francis, despite knowing from Viganò himself “how perverse and evil McCarrick was in his intentions and actions,” chose to make “McCarrick one of his principal agents in governing...

    Why Archbishop Viganò is almost certainly telling the truth There are five considerations that seem to me to make it very likely that Archbishop Viganò’s testimony is truthful.  To be sure, given how numerous and detailed are the claims he makes, it would not be surprising if he has gotten certain particulars wrong.  And perhaps in his passion he has inadvertently overstated things here and there.  But the main claims are probably true.  I certainly do not believe he is lying.  The reasons are these: 1. The deafening silence of Pope Francis Pope Francis has been accused of grave offenses...

    Revealing “The Great Accuser”: Pope Francis Fires Back at Crictics Despite Pledge of Silence Bree A. Dail September 22, 2018 Although the pope pledged that he would “not say a single word” about the accusation that he was involved in the coverup of Cardinal McCarrick’s sexual abuse, he seems unable to stop making oblique references to exactly that situation. There has been a pattern—a theme if you will—that has overtaken the papal homilies of the past few weeks since the allegations first sufraced. Indeed, since news broke of the 11-page testimony from Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganó on August 25th, the...

    VATICAN CITY, September 18, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – To Archbishop Carlo Viganò’s allegations, Pope Francis will say not a word. But on the theme of the Great Accuser, he has preached four times. This morning, September 18, after preaching on the Gospel of the day – in which Jesus raises the son of the Widow of Nain (Luke 7:11-17) – Francis shifted from thoughts on Christ’s compassion to those concerning His silence before the “Great Accuser.” According to the Vatican’s own news website, Vatican News, Francis believes Christ’s silence was itself a form of compassion. “The Pope brought up that it...

    Will he announce a plan to sideline any prelate who openly supports gay orientation? Will he finally cite homosexuality as the root of the pedophile problem in the Church? On Thursday a delegation of U.S. bishops met with Pope Francis at the Vatican to discuss the ensuing sexual-abuse crisis in America, and while the USCCB issued a statement saying that the bishop’s meeting with Francis “was a lengthy, fruitful, and good exchange,” the matter of Cardinal Vigano’s 11-page testimony detailing cover-up allegations against Francis and 32 other high-ranking church officials—the very crux of the issue—was never addressed, nor has the...

    In light of the staggering revelations of Abp. Carlo Maria Viganò, currently hunted by the Holy See's intelligence services for asking Pope Francis to resign for the cover-up of former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick's homosexual predation, Church Militant reached out to Dr. Antonio Caponnetto, an accomplished Catholic historian and doctor in philosophy from Buenos Aires — and one who knows more about Pope Francis when he was Cdl. Jorge Bergoglio than anyone else. Caponnetto is a prolific researcher and lecturer who's written extensively about liberation theology in South America, but is mostly known for his book La Iglesia Traicionada (The Church Betrayed), a first-hand account of living under the reign of Cdl. Bergoglio...
